IDE log

There is a new support for HTML5/JS projects that if some folder contains package.json or bower.json, then you can open the folder as project using Open project dialog - the folder icon becomes HTML/JS project icon (similar to Maven I think).

However if I have ergonomics and all features deactivated (aka standard situation in full distro), this does not work. The folder with known JSON file has standard folder icon and cannot be opened as project. Activating HTML/JS helps.

Thank you

(please note that at the time being, this feature is only in web-main)

Not sure if we can do anything in ProjectConvertor's code - if yes, Jardo, please let me know. Thanks.

Basically a feature request related to issue 248615. Couldn't be addressed before the change propagated to all repositories.
